My Real Life

We Interrupt our Regularly Scheduled Programming…

I lied.

I’ll tell you about Bloomie’s and Rosa Mexicano’s tomorrow.

For now, though, I’ve got some other news!
As you may remember, a few months ago, I submitted my novel to the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest. They originally took 5,000 entries, and in the second round, narrowed it to 1,000. I was thrilled to have made that cut. As of yesterday, they have narrowed the field again, to the 250 quarterfinalists. I’m in!

In this next round, our excerpts have been posted on and are awaiting customer reviews. So, if you are so inclined, I would love if you could help me out!

If you go to, in the Search All Departments box, type in “Amy Bozza.” (Tee-hee…I’m on Amazon!) You will get a list and my excerpt will be first. There will be a tan box to the left that says “Thriller and Suspense” and then to the right of that is my name and the title, which is “The Follow Through.” If you click on the title, it will take you to the page for my excerpt. Here’s the direct link to my page.
You have to download the excerpt, but there is a catch. They only allow downloads to Kindle’s or to Kindle for PC. Imagine my dismay, as I don’t own a Kindle, however, I was able to quickly and freely download Kindle for PC. Again, it’s FREE. Took about two minutes. Once you download the program, you can go back and download the excerpt. If you have a Kindle, you can download directly to your Kindle.

This is the important part: After you have read the excerpt, please go back to Amazon and leave a customer review. I’m happy to take high-fives on the blog in the comments, but please keep the reviews “business-like.”

I warn you ahead of time…you may be surprised that it came from me, as the story can be a little violent at times, but, it’s fiction, folks. Pretend it isn’t me who wrote it, if you need to.

Thank you for your support!


  1. This is SO great. I will definitely click on the linko.
    I have a friend (Blake Crouch, the great thriller author) who writes crazy violent and very well-written stuff. And he is a gentle, soft-spoken dad. Everyone is amazed. Check him out, he’s on Amazon too.

  2. I am so excited for you! When I get a chance to download it, I will. I read a small excerpt on my itouch but I couldn’t comment so I will have to on the laptop. I wish you the best of luck! Soooooo awesome!

    Have a great weekend!
